Muslim Lawmaker 'Confident' North Carolina Shooting Was About More Than A Parking Spot
by Chuck Ross
Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, said that he is "confident" that the shooting in Chapel Hill, N.C. on Tuesday which left three Muslim students dead was about more than a dispute over parking.
"There certainly are some facts to indicate that this may — their religion may have been a factor," Ellison told CNN on Thursday. "So I think that it's very important that we pursue this and get to the bottom of it."
"I am confident based on my review of the facts that the parking answer is certainly not the whole story," he continued.
